Feed The Seals


Seaside’s seals have been entertaining visitors for over 70 years at the Seaside Aquarium. Each of the seals has developed its own splashy or noisy routine to encourage you to toss a bit of chopped fish its direction. The aquarium also features live displays of ­Northwest marine life and a hands-on discovery center for kids.

While the Aquarium has been located on Seaside’s Promenade since 1937, the building dates from 1914 and previously was another of the city’s major attractions, an indoor saltwater pool known as a natatorium. Outside of the aquarium, you can view the 35-foot skeleton of a Gray Whale.
